Third-graders at Fairview Elementary School in Plymouth recently presented a Wax Museum for their families.
This was the first time for the event, held April 13 in the school lobby and gym, featuring 48 students from Mary Vanderkin’s and Lisa Little’s classes.
Each of the students researched a famous person – past or present – and told the story of that person’s life as if they were him or her whenever someone stepped on the museum “button” in front of them.
Students were encouraged to bring props, and many dressed the part. Students also created a timeline of each person’s life, which was on display at the event.
“We were pleased by how much the students stayed in character, even when their families were talking with them,” Mrs. Vanderkin said.
